I flipped through this book in a shop, and I'm sorry to say, my impressions weren't good. The subtlety from the pre-seventies colour cover artwork is gone. The editors idea of colour management was to push the saturation in all the channels to the maximum, so that the product can compete with anything sold at Walmart. And they forgot to check the print proofs, apparently, because the hues are light years away from the original ones. Quite striking for a book that claims to focus on the colour aspect. And the slapdash croppings do nothing to make it all look better. I definitely don't feel like buying this.
